Présentation de l'éditeur

Sometimes the adventure chooses you.

Lover of fine poetry and lousy choose-your-own-adventure novels, Professor Sebastian Swift was once the bad-boy darling of the literati. The only lines he does these days are Browning, Frost and Cummings. Even his relationship with the hot, handsome Wolfe Neck Police Chief Max Prescott is healthy.

When one of his most talented students comes to him bruised and begging for help, Swift hands over the keys to his Orson Island cabin—only to find out that the boy’s father is dead and the police are suspicious. In an instant, the stable life Swift has built for himself hangs on finding the boy and convincing him to give himself up before Max figures out Swift’s involvement in the case.

Max enjoys splitting an infinitive or two with his favorite nutty professor, but he’s not much for sonnets or Shakespeare. He likes being lied to even less. Yet his instincts—and his heart—tell him his lover is being played. Max can forgive lies and deception, but a dangerous enemy may not stop until Swift is heading up his own dead poet’s society.

Warning: The Surgeon General has determined that Josh Lanyon’s smart, sexy, sophisticated stories may prove hazardous to your heart.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A new personal favourite 16 juin 2011
Par John Corcoran - Publié sur

I enjoy Josh Lanyon's writing: he always tells an engaging story with wit and charm with a special ability to create characters we enjoy. But Come Unto These Yellow Sands really is Lanyon 2.0. This book works on so many levels. It's beautifully written and intelligent; Lanyon makes five words do the work of dozens. Main characters are carefully drawn and engaging: nothing about them is "canned" or cliche. Other reviewers have described the story with more eloquence than I could muster, but it's as honed as the craft of the book. It's all wave and no flotsam.

I found it an enormously satisfying read, but the best reason for buying it is that I suspect it will re-read even better.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Fantastic Story by Lanyon! 17 juin 2011
Par Reece Notley - Publié sur

"I've never hid my love for Lanyon's writing and I'm not going to do so now. Some are less intriguing than others, most notably the "Dangerous Ground" series which I enjoy but there's something about Lanyon's writing voice in mysteries that does it for me. Wordgasms.

Josh doesn't disappoint with "Come Unto These Yellow Sands".

There IS a formula to Lanyon's mysteries. Usually the one of the male leads is hindered in some way, either physically or emotionally and he is coupled with a stronger, authoritative figure. For most writers, this would be a cliched trope but bhis formula works because Lanyon makes it work. The compromised male lead is complex and his "issue" varies...with Lanyon working those issues into the storyline.

In CUTYS, Sebastian Swift is not just the "Fall Down and Go Boom Bad Boy" of the literary circuit, he is still a recovering addict and Lanyon addresses it within the book (albeit mildly). His lover, Max Prescott, is a cop that Swift half-lies to about a murder... and Swift ends up paying for that hiding of the truth with the damage it does to his relationship with Prescott.

I enjoyed the mystery but I also enjoy the dual plotline of Swift's exploration of his relationship and his fall from grace. THAT is what Lanyon does best... run two or sometimes three plots within a book and does so gracefully and with fantastic pacing.

I highly recommend this book. It's on the re-read for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable on so many levels 17 juin 2011

I think this novella is my new absolute favorite of Lanyon's stand alone works. It is so masterfully done and it works on so many levels. The other reviewers already described plot in great details, so I will not go in there either, I will just say that both Swift and Max are quite flawed people, but Lanyon's superb writing never let me feel anything but sympathy for both of them. I really enjoyed the chemistry between them and while mystery was certainly important for the plot, heck it was the plot, I felt that romance was just as important and unravelling of mystery highlighted not just flaws that both guys had, but also their best qualities. And I never doubted for a second that they are better together than apart.

An intriguing murder mystery mixed with a beautiful love story.

I'm not articulate enough to express how amazing Lanyon's writing is, it's just something that needs to be experienced firsthand. There were moments when all I could do was sigh and re-read a passage over and over because either the words themselves moved me or the emotions of the characters affected me so deeply. For me, an author that delivers this type of experience is the ultimate.

Come Unto These Yellow Sands is the story of a man, Swift, and his journey from simply living, "..healthy, whole, and mostly happy," to being an active participant, more fully engaged, and ready to reconnect with life. The vehicle for Swift's metamorphosis is a murder mystery; but Swift is not a police officer, FBI agent, or even an athlete. He is a college professor and a poet. The journey for Swift is bumpy and perilous. Josh Lanyon has written a story that is like walking through an art gallery; every single word counts, carefully placed to create the most vivid picture and evince a wide range of emotions. He creates a sense of time and place with phrases such as, "he could hear rain ticking against a metal watering can" and "cyan-blue waves ruffled against sand and rocks." Chiaroscuro is a painting technique in which the artist carefully plays with the contrast of light and dark. As I read the story, I was continually reminded of the artistry of Josh Lanyon's writing as he, too, played with the contrast of light and dark in this book. Swift sees the world in a shifting pallet of colors while his sometimes boyfriend, Police Chief Max Prescott, has a black and white view of the world. Swift is cocooned safely within his academic world, while ugly words and events revolve around him. Swift, who has managed his recovery from drug addiction for 6 years, is suddenly overwhelmed with want and need for the drug he thought he had conquered. Come Unto These Yellow Sands is an intelligently written novel by a master craftsman. The mystery will keep you guessing, Swift will own your heart, and the ending will have you cheering. This is a novel you should not miss!
